My family recently finished with our first PCS. After six years we were more then ready for our trip across the country and now we love our new home. However, one of my biggest concerns about our PCS was that it was in the middle of the school year.
My son was attending a special needs preschool at our last duty station, but when we moved we ended up arriving at the end of the school year at our new duty station. I decided to keep my son home instead of sending him to a new school for only a few weeks, and instead I started preparing him for his Kindergarten year starting at the end of August.
